Apple sells 1 million iPhone 3Gs, 10 million App Store downloads in first weekend
Talk about breaking (or is it setting?) records. Apple recently announced that it has sold its one-millionth iPhone 3G in just three days after the initial worldwide rollout. That’s a lot of iPhone 3Gs, and yet many have yet to get their hands on one.
Apple also brags that the newly opened App Store, introduced with iPhone 2.0 OS where users can download additional apps for their iPhone or iPod Touch, has already topped 10 million downloads at the same time.
The figures of the iPhone 3G sales are just… as expected. It was introduced in more than 20 countries around the world and there was so much hype about it that I’m actually surprised Apple didn’t sell more.
The App store downloads are somewhat notable, because the number of applications barely goes over 500, and I’m sure a lot of iPhone 3G, iPhone Classic and iPod Touch owners have yet to try it out.
In any case, the future looks bright for Apple and its famed touchscreen device. Let’s see how far its magic will reach.
